User Group Categories [Vanilla 1]

edited October 2009 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Some time ago, I recall seeing a discussion about the possibility of an add-on for Vanilla 1 that would allow members to form their own user groups, which would get its own category. I can't seem to find the discussion now, but does anybody know if anything was done with that? If not, how might we go about making it?

Any help would be appreciated. While I know a bit of PHP coding, it's not nearly enough to take on something like that without the help of others.

    I played once with groups in a very pragmatic and "dirty" way:

    I created as an admin of the forum as many roles as groups wanted.
    then created as many categories as needed and granted access only to one category per role in a 1-1 binding

    so, in the end, each role (which was representing each of the groups) had its own category, only accessible by their members

    sure there may be some more elegant solutions, but it was quick'n'dirty and it worked quite ok
